    Default Way too many tracks, must be a better way to find my music.

    I take it most of you have used Genius on iTunes at some point or another. I'm looking for something with similar functionality that will create Traktor compatible playlist based on genre, key, bpm, etc.

    Anyone know if there's such an app out there?

    I really think that's part of the fun and enjoyment of being a selector. If you just want it automatic... I don't know. I consider DJing to be 50% skill, 50% selection. It's not overtly complicated... but it's an incredibly important part of how your personal flavor turns out.

    You could always save off the genius playlist and put it back together in traktor. Thats as close as youre gonna get.

    djing is really all about selection though, no machine can beat a good dj.

    Delete tracks you don't love. Seriously I don't understand how people can have such huge libraries.

    Fully agree. Some people's library's are huge and full of low quality crap. Think back to vinyl when it was quality not quantity.

    if you don't know your tracks inside and out, you really shouldn't be using them regularly

    I like to have a good amount of music on hand because at sone gigs you never know. That being said I sort all my music into genres they from that make sets that contain the most recent music of that genre that I like say about 100-200 of my fav tracks at the moment and add and delete from those list. So I'll have a house, then house set, trance, then trance set and so on.

    sorting by date is a good idea.

    Don't know of apps, and frankly, I wouldn't trust it to keep tracks in a way that correlates with the way my brain remembers where things are.
    I organize all my EDM tracks by date I purchased, and then into multiple playlists.
